CEEC Chaplains is made up of those individuals who have been called to the Ministry of Chaplaincy. This empowers them to represent our Communion to the Armed Forces and the civilian institutions. They require Chaplains who represent this Communion’s best for their persons in need of spiritual and moral support.

In the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches, a chaplain is a priest who provides pastoral ministry to Christians and people in all walks of life. Some priests serve full-time as chaplains in the armed forces, whereas other parish priests have assumed additional responsibilities as chaplains at Veterans Administration hospitals, with local police forces, at prisons, and in hospitals. One of the most significant features of chaplaincy activity is ministry to individuals who are Sacramental, Evangelical, and Charismatic Christians, and the witness of our faith among all Americans.

In general, a “chaplain” is by formal definition typically a priest, pastor, ordained deacon, or other member of the clergy serving a group of people who are not organized as a mission or church, or who are unable to attend church for various reasons such as health, confinement, or military or civil duties.
